* The death/defeat of any boss. The Forever Train is a particular favorite for some, when done correctly.
* Fox establishes how {{Badass}} he and his wingmen are when he defeats the Aircraft Carrier:
--> '''Aircraft Carrier pilot:''' "WHO ''ARE'' YOU GUYS?!" \\
'''Fox:''' "[[BadassBoast We're Star Fox!]]"
* The team's journey through Area 6 can be considered one. Here you are, outside Andross's front door, and his army's throwing just about ''everything'' they have at you. But you just keep plowing through them. By the boss fight at the end, the enemies are at wit's end trying to find anything that can stop you.
** The best part is when Rob actually gets the Great Fox to shoot some targets for you, finally getting in on the action.
* The Star Wolf battles. They are quite a formidable hybrid between WolfpackBoss and MirrorBoss.
* Redirecting the train on Macbeth so that it blows up the factory.
